And, as with all success stories, there’s a reason. Kiyosaki has a knack for getting right at the heart of the issue and in his simple, unpretentious prose, he captures our attention and gives us some powerful ideas to think about and implement into our lives—addressing what has to be one of the most challenging arenas for all of us: money.
“One dad had a habit of saying, ‘I can’t afford it.’ The other dad forbade those words to be used. He insisted I say, ‘How can I afford it?’”
Juxtaposing his biological, educated, government-employed father who always struggled financially (“Poor Dad”) with his best friend’s entrepreneurial, wealthy father (“Rich Dad”), Kiyosaki weaves a compelling story about how the rich think more than a little differently than the poor and the middle class.
The challenge with this book, as with so many others, is that there are so many Big Ideas to discuss and so little time. :)
So, let’s get to work!
